Ok, so I am late with my Sarah post, sorry Sarah fans. Like I said before , the pictures on HGTV are not copy and paste compatible and I have to get B____ to Photoshop them outta there. He doesn't put this high on his priority list.
SO......here is the main farmhouse bathroom. $21,000 budget if I remember correctly. Sarah really wanted blue in here from the get go, and was thinking of using a cobalt blue penny tile, but decided against it. Her reason was this would commit you to blue forever, and the main colors were best being neutral. I think this makes a lot of sense. Her tile work is always so intricate, it would cost a fortune to take out a band of blue panny tile. The vanities were vintage dressers remade into sink units. I like that she re-used some old bits.
This baby was $4000.00. Like it, don't love it, and don't think it is a real feature in the room. I am not sure why. Maybe it should have been right under the window.
If I was spending 4K on a tub, I would want to walk in and have it say HELLO to me. Maybe the layout didn't allow for any other position.?
I found these dressers a bit Ho Hum.....Is it just me or would you have liked these white?...... I love Sarah and Tommy, but this room is not my favourite.Although it was really fun to watch, They have a great chemistry and clearly have a lot of fun. In this episode, they are shopping for plaid fabrics and come across a shop in Chinatown selling adult size paper plaid shirts. Tommy contemplates buying one. I think they are made to bury people in......not sure, but I have heard that somewhere......better not buy it Tommy!
Subway tiles, bordered by listowel and more expensive marble and pencil tiles (a good way to save on the more expensive tile)......typical Sarah Richardson use of tile to make a statement. Her tile guy must need a really detailed work order to get her combos right...
The art is made from sheets of postage stamps, matted and framed a-la-Tommy. I really do like this farmhouse cabinet. I think it is the most authentic piece in the room. Now this says Farmhouse!
This season there are some well placed (maybe" ill-placed") product placements...truthfully I think they SUCK.
I cringe when I hear them do it, and I am sure I see Sarah flinch too......
(Don't take me to task for being honest....remember this blog has to be authentic..)
